Licensed Real Estate Brokerage



1. This agreement is non-exclusive; you may use other brokers or agencies without cost or obligation to Island Consulting.

2. It is the owners' responsibility to contact Island Consulting, Inc. in writing if the property is no longer available for sale. This will stop further efforts by us to secure a buyer. You're about to hire us to do a job for you. Just like any Real Estate Brokerage, we earn our commission only once we can provide to you a ready, willing and able buyer who has signed a contract to purchase your time share at full asking price ("full asking price" means any amount within $25 of your stated asking price) or a price that you agree to. If the property has already been sold or taken off the market, AND if Island Consulting was not notified in writing, we are due our full commission. (so tell us if something changes!)

3. All proceeds from the sale will be disbursed in a timely manner upon closing by the title company handling the closing.

4. Owner shall indemnify and hold Island Consulting, Inc., its officers and employees harmless against and from any misrepresentations or omissions made herein by owner or failure of owner to perform hereunder. Seller(s) warrants that the information in this Agreement is true and correct to the best of his/her/their knowledge and belief, and may be used as a basis for presenting the property to prospective buyers. Seller is obligated to inform Broker of any material changes in the information contained herein.

5. This agreement shall be in effect for eighteen (18) months from the date of signing. It may be cancelled without cost or obligation by either party with three days written notice.

6. The commission is a flat fee of $1500. For properties worth less than $1500, we'll "get rid of it for you" and our commission is whatever the property brings on the market, up to the $1500 regular commission. Your ONLY cost for the sale of your time share will be our commission. Closing costs are paid by the buyer at time of closing.

7. Once you sign your listing agreement: DO NOT BANK ANY MORE WEEKS. Only if your week is within 30 days of starting should you bank your week so that you don't lose it. Your goal is to sell the timeshare, not give it to the exchange company. Call us if you have any questions on this.

Whom Do You Trust??

With 28 years experience, we at Island Consulting Realty have seen just about every scheme and scam imaginable. So in deciding whom you should do business with, here are some tips on what to look for, and what to look out for:

1. First, NEVER, EVER, under any circumstances pay money upfront to get your time share sold. If you haven't figured it out

yet, these are sucker bets. They'll hit you for hundreds of dollars for nothing more than an advertisement. They'll promise you giant sums of money for your time share. They'll promise you a sale so fast you'll be cashing the check before the week is out! BUT FIRST! They need your credit card number for a tiny little "advertising" fee (or "appraisal" fee or any of a number of different excuses). Don't be fooled, don't be conned, and don't be scammed. Would you give a real estate agent money before they sell your house? Why do you think this is any different? Pay for results only. They sell the property, they get paid. No excuses, no exceptions. Not exaggerating at all, we get easily 15 calls a day from folks who were scammed once, twice and sometimes even three times before they figured out it was all a con. They still own their time share, and someone else has their money. Sad, but true; there are many companies out there who are in business for nothing more than collecting upfront fees. One red flag is that they call you, not you calling them. These are usually boiler rooms set up with hundreds of phone lines designed to bring in as many suckers as possible. Don't be one of them.

2. Know who can legally sell your time share for you, and who can't. By LAW, the only company who you can hire to sell your

time share for you must be a licensed real estate brokerage. If your time share is located inside the State of Florida, Florida law state the brokerage you use MUST be a Florida Licensed Real Estate Brokerage (like us). Every state in the U.S. now considers time shares to be a real estate transaction. This is true whether your time share is deeded or not, and whether your time share is in the U.S. or not. If the company you hire is not a licensed Real Estate Brokerage, they're nothing more than an advertising agency. They can put an ad on the internet, among thousands of others, and wish you luck. These companies will usually cross the line and promise you great things, all for just a small "advertising" fee of a few hundred dollars. But they deliver nothing. If a buyer calls them, they legally cannot answer questions about the time share on your behalf (that becomes an agency relationship and requires a real estate license and agreement between agent and seller). They cannot collect a deposit on your behalf (that constitutes having an escrow account which is governed by law. Only a licensed Real Estate Brokerage, title agency or title attorney can provide escrow services). They cannot write a contract on your behalf. In other words, all they can do is give the caller your phone number! And for this you paid an upfront fee!

3. Become a buyer for a day! Not really, but pretend. Before you hire a company, give them a test run. Call their office and ask

for information about a listing on their web site (pretending to be a buyer, not a seller). Do they try to switch you to a different property? (giant red flag) Or, ask for help in picking out the right one. Or simply email them about one of their listings. Put some questions together and see how they reply. This is how the buyer of your time share is going to be treated when they call in or email. Is the company working on your behalf? Are they responding quickly to calls or emails? If not, why are you even considering them?

What's My Time Share Worth??

Know your market and your competition. Having a price that is hundreds or thousands of dollars higher than comparable listings only makes the other listings look better! Look at our web site at to see other listings. If you bought your time share direct from the resort, you're going to lose money on a resale, period. And it's going to be a sizable loss. A 60-70% loss is not at all unusual, and it could be more. If anyone tells you different, they're probably asking for hundreds of dollars in "up-front" fees. A buyer will spend hours on the internet shopping and comparing. They will buy the least expensive comparable property they can find, just like you would. There are hundreds of thousands of time shares for sale. Price yours properly and it will sell. Price it too high and you're going to own it until the Earth cools. (We know we didn't just make your day for you with the above info, but we're here to get your time share sold for you and we're going to give it to you straight).
